It also has a micro USB port for power, so you will need one USB port to power it.  My Vizio TV's USB port didn't have enough voltage to power it, bu my Xbox One did.

What about a Kangaroo Pro? It has an ethernet port. I was thinking about the possibility of running it as the server, tied to a projector for main screen, and hooked up to the LAN. Don't have one yet, but considering it. The Pros currently run for $170 on Amazon.

Kangaroos do work. One of the guys at Armada II had one and used it to run a station. I would use a PC as the server though, though thats just me.


As a side note, it is possible to build an Artemis PC for under $100 with some scrounging.

I like the idea of hooking the Kangaroo to my main screen projector. I think that means it would also have to act as the server.

I'm not a tech guy, so I don't understand most of this, but here are the primary specs for the Kangaroo Pro:

Processor - Intel Atom x5-z8500 1.44 GHz
Processor Main Features - 64 bit Quad-Core Processor
Cache Per Processor - 2 x 1 MB L2 Cache
Memory - 2 GB LPDDR3
Storage - 32 GB eMMC
Graphics - Intel HD Graphics
Power Supply - 2200 mAh battery, up to 4 hour(s)
Operating System - Windows 10 Home
CPU Type - Intel Atom
CPU Speed - X5-Z8500 (1.44 GHz)
L2 Cache Per CPU - 2 x 1 MB
CPU Main Features - 64 bit Quad-Core Processor
GPU/VGA Type - Intel HD Graphics
Graphics Interface - Integrated video
Memory Capacity - 2 GB LPDDR3
Maximum Memory Supported - 2 GB

At first blush, I would think it could easily play the role of Artemis server. But again, I am not a tech guy.

Can you elaborate?

You can basically run Artemis on a 10 year old XP system.  If you have access to older systems, you can put something together.  The small, new systems seem easier to manage than building a bunch of old XP systems.

Last year I bought a couple of HP Stream 5701 Windows 8.1 tablets just for Artemis; 1.33GHz Atom CPU with 1GB RAM which at the time cost me $99 each. Runs all of the consoles just fine, but I wouldn't recommend using it as the server. You need to spend at least $150 on that. [biggrin]

Sure. I have been thinking about doing a topic about PC building on the cheap for Artemis for awhile now and with all the talk lately of inexpensive computer options on the boards lately I went ahead wrote something up. Here is the link:
